  1. Club Logo Sticky Thread Sticky: Photo issues on our Forum (and across the internet)

    For years Photobucket has been a great place to host photos to then embed into forums like ours. However, this has changed, and to be able to do this from Photobucket you now need to pay a $399 yearly fee. So, we're afraid you'll be seeing plenty of this 4265 from now on :angry::angry::angry:

  1. Towing a 450 with a motorhome/ A frame- steering probs!

    Trying to tow my 02 450 on a braked a frame, the steering slaps from side to side enough to shake the towing vehicle. I have read that a bungee on the steering wheel can stop it but this is not treating the disease, only the symptoms. It is professionally fitted qaulity kit (car-a-tow) and fits...

  3. Question Best place for a touch up pen?

    Have a couple of small marks on my doors thanks to inconsiderate car parkers. I like the idea of having a small touch paint pen. Where is the best place to get a touch up pen? I have seen some on eBay that are called magic pens? Now I'm not a believer of magic and wondered if anyone else has gone...

  4. Suitable Removable L-Plates?

    Hi, I'm just in the process of buying a forFour as my daughter's first car and I'm trying to work out the best option for L-plates. I'm guessing that all the front/rear surfaces of the car are either plastic or aluminium, so magnetic plates are probably out, but most of the adhesive plates seem...

    After eighteen years of Smart ownership, the same Passion cabriolet, I unfortunately had to scrap the car yesterday. Despite only having covered 80k kilometres it had reached the stage of uneconomical repair. It was great being an early adopter and meeting folks at the early Herts pub meeting,...
